MSF's publications are an expression of our belief in the principle of témoignage, or bearing witness, and the belief that we are accountable to those we work for and with. Sharing news about our activities and reflecting on them, offering critiques when necessary, are therefore crucial aspects of our work.

Almost six years into the conflict in Syria, the high number of Syrian refugees seeking shelter in Jordan has put considerable pressure on the country's health system.

More than three million Iraqis are currently displaced by the conflict, and many more continue to flee their homes every day as a result of fighting in Mosul and Hawija areas.
